Meningococcal meningitis claimed Lucas legs. Mo saw it as a cruel and tragic circumstance of life. Luca saw it differently. He saw it as an opportunity to choose the colour of his new ‘clip on’ prosthetic limbs. Those 7 words sum up the courageous fighting spirit of a little boy faced with a fierce adversary that had the odds stacked in its favour. But he won. And his lust for life and refusal to give in inspired a heartwarming global movement of solidarity, and made his name synonymous with the spirit of defiance. This is his incredible journey. This one is for Luca.

Luca is a beautiful 5 year old who was struck down with Meningococcal Septicaemia when he was just 3 and his life changed forever... This horrendous disease ravaged every part of his body and left him fighting for his life! With less than a 3% chance of survival Luca lost both of his legs and huge amounts of tissue, muscle and skin. His story & lust for life has gone on to inspire people all over the world!
